Evaluation Committee

MainStreet’s Evaluation Program, run by a committee of theatrical stage directors, music directors, and choreographers,  provides creators with constructive professional feedback.  The program was inaugurated in 1983 as one of two core programs of National Music Theater Network (NMTN).  The mission of NMTN, founded by actor Tim Jerome, was to expand the new works development market into regional America. 

In 2010, Tim moved the original Evaluation Program to a new company, MainStreet Musicals and laid the groundwork for the development of a network of independent regional new works Festivals.  That network now exists - and MainStreet is currently in the process of expanding it into more U.S. cities.

MainStreet is grateful to these professional theater artists for their generous participation as Evaluators since the program started in 1983.  (Links will take you to Evaluator-designated sites.)
